In order for the soul energy to heal parts of its past or conclude an ongoing scenario, it creates present situations or feelings that direct a person towards their past lives. These may come in several formats. They may come in the form of unexplained fears or phobias, where it does not add up, or as a strong curiosity about past life experiences.

There has been much controversy and curiosity that we have been here many times before. Dr Weiss describes the process in a wonderful metaphor: “It is as if a large diamond were to be found in every person. Picture a diamond a foot long. The diamond has a thousand facets, but the facets are covered in dirt and tar. It is the job of the soul to clean each facet until the surface is brilliant ….. some have cleaned many facets and gleam brightly; others have only managed to clean a few …”

It is when we have cleaned enough facets that we become interested in the prospect of past lives and begin our ability to tap into them. Some may not even know that their soul has been busy cleaning facets, preparing them for an experience that can transform fears and limitations.

A lady came to me a few years ago about her two year old son. He had an unexplained fear of water. Every time she went to bath him it was an ordeal; he would scream and shout until it was over. His mother could not understand his fear. Through remote viewing (looking at energy from a distance) I looked into the little boy to discover what it was that was troubling him. The images I received related to a past life. I saw a man in his fifties staggering from the sea and collapsing on the beach. I realised the man, struggling to breathe and clutching his chest, was having a heart attack. Sending healing energies to the scene, it soon began to fade.

A few days later, the lady called me. Her son was now asking to have a bath and playing happily in the bubbles. Once the energy from his past was discovered and resolved, it could pass through and release the stress it was causing him. The little boy’s soul was ready to tidy up, cleaning facets of his diamond.

What are past lives?

Past lives are the times we have been here before in another human body. When we die, the imaginary cord that connects us to the earth plane is cut. We slip out of the human body, leaving the ‘shell’ behind. Some of the energy remains as part of the body but essentially we have gone, although not forever; we have simply slipped into a new form. The new form exists for a while in what is known as the dimension of spirit. Here we remain if we still have things to learn from our present lifetime, or issues to resolve to do with those we have left behind. Once completed, we move out of ‘spirit’ into a resting period.

The resting period:

During the resting period we are blissfully happy in a state of suspension. As our true spirit forms, we do not feel pain or any particular forms of emotion other than the truth, which is love. When our resting period is up it is time to begin learning again; we have to experience something different from where we are at present, hence we re-enter a human form to start the next learning period.

The memory of where we came from becomes misty as we pass through into the earth plane. As we do so the energy becomes thicker and the memory of who we are fades away so that we can fully experience what we are to learn in the new life.

Memory from past lives can only be recalled when we are back in the experience of learning. In our true spirit form, we do not need to recall because we are resting and in our purest form. Our soul energy may wish to recall the memories of the past in order to learn more in its present experience if the memory of our previous lives has had a deep impact, or where the continuous story of our life goes on.

The purpose of past life recalls is to heal experiences from the past that do or might affect your present lifetime. They serve as a fantastic tool to release the stagnant energies that put parts of your life on hold, irrespective of whether or not you believe them to be a very vivid imagination or past lives.
